Active Calls for Submission

Structural and interpersonal expressions of racism afflict health care, whether manifesting as social determinants of health, policies that create health disparities, or diagnostic algorithms that bias treatment decisions. Racism also underlies discriminatory mistreatment of students, trainees, and physicians and the underrepresentation of non-white identities in medicine. MedEdPORTAL invites submissions that work toward dismantling racism within our profession through training and education.
The adverse effects of climate change are already apparent, pervasive, and growing. Health care professionals must play a key role in identifying, treating, and preventing climate-related adverse health outcomes while ensuring equity for all patients and communities. MedEdPORTAL invites submissions of generalizable teaching and learning climate and health curricula for integration into health professional training.
